European universities can apply to some US federal funds both as a sub-awardee (partner) and in some cases as the main applicant (prime-awardee or coordinator). However it is important to notice that US federal funds typically only award grants to foreign institutions if they have unique facilities or skills and deliver research results that cannot be achieved by researchers in the USA.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) is the US federal fund from which SDU receive most funding. NIH is part of the US Department of Health and Human Services, and it is the primary federal grant provider for health science research in the USA.
